Lyrics
'FLYING HIGH'
Music by Egbert Kappert of Deventer, Netherlands
with Lyrics by Michael J. Martin of Easley, South Carolina (USA)
_____________________________________________________

CHORUS:
I'm flying high now...
above the speed of sound.
My feet's a dangling..
Can’t barely touch the ground.

I've looked so long now...
on the people down below.
Searching for an answer...
Oh people don't cha know?

VERSE I:
You've come so far now...
Don't turn your back now.
Your heart can guide you...
If you only knew how.
Look deep inside...
And set your love free.
It will guide you...
And lead you to see...

(GUITAR SOLO)

CHORUS:
I'm flying high now...
above the speed of sound.
My feet's a dangling..
Can’t barely touch the ground.

I've looked so long now...
on the people down below.
Searching for an answer...
Oh people don't cha know?

VERSE II:
You've come to know how...
To set your love free.
That love can guide you...
And lead you to Me.
It's deep inside you...
It's piercing your soul.
It will guide you...
So you can know...

BRIDGE:
You know... My love...
Will always be there - to comfort you...
Yes, My Heart... And My hand...
Can guide you through this - roughest land...
I'll always be there...to see...
You through this time...

CHORUS:
I'm flying high now...
above the speed of sound.
My feet's a dangling..
Can’t barely touch the ground.

I've looked so long now...
on the people down below.
Searching for an answer...
Oh people don't cha know?

ENDING: YOU’VE GOT TO KNOW!!!

Flying High
Powerful backing that is full of energy. I like the riffs you use. The fuzzy guitar tends to overwhelm the vocal, which makes the words difficult to catch (if you don't look at the supplied lyrics). For the next version, I'd think about how to give the words more prominence. So far so good!

You have a point...
This is a rough version and a work in progress. I need to get into a studio to get the desired results. I always appreciate your critiques Philip. Thank you for your honest opinions of the music - they help me to become a better musician.

Overall...
Overall, I like it, however, the mix of music and vocals could use some tweaking. It is hard to comprehend the vocalist, the guitar really overpowers it.

Enough negative, I'm glad that you're here and sharing!

thanks for...
your honest opinion and critique of my music. This is a rough cut version of the song - and it does need to be worked on a bit. I like the roughness of the guitars - but finding a balance with it vocally is the challenge.

Hey all...
Anyone wanting to help me can do so by going to http://www.ourstage.com/media_items/ENBFVFWZZRTD-flying-high-music-by-egbert# and listen to this same song there - it is currently at # 28 in MODERN ROCK and I would like to push it through the roof. This would not only help me but Egbert Kappert who wrote the music for this awesome song.
